He ordered the boat lowered at about (iiglit o’clock, and gave ordei-s that all the crew should remain on board, with the guns shotted and the Itoarding nettings u[), with the exception of Hanj and myself, who Avere ti> accoui-pany him to the residenc(^ of the chief. Taking with us a single oarsman to row tlui boat back to the s(5hooner, we set oil’ for the shore. ^Vh^“n we arrived at tlie jetty, Barton ordei-ed this mau to keep the boat ni'ar tln^ schooner, and to taki* in another one of the men, and to row, rapidly to the je t ty as soon as he should vec a smoke arising fr(jni the sliore lu-ar the, village, for.Avhich they were to keej) ]>artieular watch. We then set out for the chiefs abode, surrounded by a nu-inorous crowd i>f villagers. We saluted the chief on arriving at his jjalace, and were received by him with great ceremony and jioliteness. l ie invited us in as before, and })laced before us an abundant banquet of lamb’s ilesh and palm wine, giving us to understand that these fi)rmed the prehidi^ to a e?.jsfly and j)lentifiii rej)ast later in the day. We were again, also, regaled with the jieribr-nianees of tiu- dancing girls. Barton iinpiii'ed with an air of airected unconcern, the name of the yon«g girl who liad attracted his ailmiration on the priivioiis dav, and Avas informed that it was Fatizah, and that: she Avas from the mountains near the sources of the Nile. He asked no further questions, snrinisiug from the nianni'r of the cliii“f t liat flu y would bii useU'ss and miglit provoke suspicion. IJe then drev,- tlie t-Iiief .'i.'^ide, and talked witli him in a low voice fi.)r a lew moments.
